The McLaren F1, for some, is the holy grail of supercars. It epitomizes every element of what a supercar should be, quirky, quick, loud and handling capabilities that place it in a class of it’s own. The loss of this example (valued at €1.4 million and insured for €2.1 million) will bring a tear to any petrol head’s eyes.
The car had been placed in storage over 6 months for the winter season. The owner was alerted to the fire by a passer by, from here the fire quickly spread through the engine bay to make the car, more or less, a complete write-off. It looks as though nobody was hurt in the accident.
